The Beast update that all the fans have been waiting for is finally here and it is time for the celebrations to begin. The highly anticipated trailer of this Thalapathy Vijay starrer will be released on April 2 on YouTube at 6 PM and this trailer release announcement was made through a new short video that looks solid and exciting. The trailer will give us a short glimpse of what the film is going to be about as the makers have kept the premise under wraps. Though there have been various speculations regarding the plot of Beast, the trailer will only give us visual confirmation of that.

The film is directed by Nelson Dilipkumar who has already become a bankable filmmaker with the success of Kolamaavu Kokila and Doctor. Beast is expected to be loaded with action and comedy in Nelson's trademark style and the fans have pinned high hopes on the project. Produced by Sun Pictures on a grand scale, the film has music composed by Anirudh Ravichander who has delivered two phenomenal chartbusters - 'Arabic Kuthu' and 'Jolly O Gymkhana'. Except for these two songs, there have been no promotions so far and we can expect Sun Pictures to kickstart the work after the teaser release.

Pooja Hegde returns to Tamil cinema with Beast and it is going to be refreshing to see her share screen space with Vijay. Acclaimed director Selvaraghavan and Shine Tom Chacko are believed to play negative characters, while Yogi Babu, Redin Kingsley, VTV Ganesh, Sunil, Aparna Das, and others form the supporting cast. Beast has been censored with a U/A certificate and is slated to release in theatres on April 13 on a record number of screens. The film will have a pan Indian release in 5 different languages - Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam, and Kannada.

The Hindi version of Beast has been titled Raw, while the title remains the same for the rest of the versions. Beast has cinematography by Manoj Paramahamsa and editing by R Nirmal.
